Robinson coming on strong at Burlington

Former 25th-round pick Clint Robinson is starting to heat up at Class A Burlington. The 23 year old first baseman has been knocking the cover off the ball as of late as he clubbed two more round trippers in Thursday's win pushing him to 16 for the season.
The Jefferson City, MO native now has five homers in the last 6 games. He also clubbed a pair of shots on Aug. 16 at Quad Cities. His average has risen to .261 after the 3-for-4 performance Thursday. That's not too shabby considering the Midwest League is regarded as a "pitcher friendly" league.
Last season's Pioneer League MVP, Topps Pioneer Player of the Year and Pioneer All-Star, Robinson hit .336 with 15 HR and 66 RBI for Idaho Falls in '07.
He played collegiately at Troy University.
